“Falling” into the Right Career for You

As a first-generation to college student or graduate, you may feel compelled to choose a career that closely aligns with your major or follow a path heavily influenced by others. Alternatively, our UC alumni will share how it is often our unexpected experiences that open new pathways toward surprising opportunities. Connect with our alumni panelists and learn how they overcame expectations to write their own successful stories.
